Trouble Sleeping? Try These Things if Melatonin Doesn’t Work

June 15, 2020

Good sleep is the foundation of your health. Without good sleep, your body doesn’t have the time to recover energy or repair itself. Your brain needs sleep to process information properly. In short, if you can’t sleep, you’ll probably have a miserable time. Many people turn to melatonin medications to help them find better sleep. While this is effective for some, it doesn’t address everyone’s specific needs. If you’ve tried melatonin and it hasn’t worked, try the following.

Try Relaxation Techniques

The reason you’re having trouble sleeping might not be because of a chemical imbalance in your body. It could be because your mind and body are too tense to relax properly. You can solve this by employing a variety of different relaxation techniques.

Start by lying down and working on slowing your breathing. According to No Sleepless Nights, doing this will help slow your heart rate down which prepares the body for sleep. Next, bring mental awareness to each part of your body. Start with your feet and move up to the head. For each body part, search it for tension and allow it to relax. Don’t force relaxation, allow it to naturally happen through mental awareness.

Try a Natural Solution

One way to help your body sleep is by adjusting your diet. Many people have found that using hemp flower in their diet helps their body relax and sleep better. According to Sweet Leaf Hemp Farms, not all strains actually help you sleep, so you should research and experiment before committing to hemp flower. You might be concerned about addiction. This is a common misconception with hemp flower. Hemp flower is related to marijuana but doesn’t contain high enough levels of THC to give you a high or be addictive. In fact, hemp flower is an extremely safe thing to use.

See a Sleep Doctor

If your regular doctor is having trouble diagnosing your problems, you may want to see a specialist. Sleep doctors have focused their studies on conditions that prevent people from getting a good night's sleep. They can perform a study on you. According to ASC Sleep Services, this requires you to go into a lab and sleep with several sensors attached to your body. The sensors will record all sorts of different things about your brain activity, heart rate, breathing, and other body functions. This will help the doctor determine the cause of your sleep issues. Once this is determined, solving the problem will be much easier.

It’s very important that you don’t give up hope on getting better sleep. You will be amazed how much your life improves when your brain and body are able to receive the rest they need. Everything from your energy levels to your mood stability will be much better.
